Tuesday, June 7, 2022
Nanina's in the Park, Belleville, NJ
Join us for our emerald anniversary!
Greater Newark Conservancy envisions each and every individual in our community living healthy, productive lives in harmony with nature. We commit to centering equity and opportunity in all our programs and throughout our organization.
Greater Newark Conservancy was founded in 1987 as an extension of Rutgers Cooperative Extension to beautify New Jersey's urban communities. Our programs have evolved over the years, but at our core, we envision Newark and its surrounding communities with universal and equitable access to nutritious food and a green, resilient, sustainable, and healthy urban environment for living, work, and recreation. To advance this vision, we foster collaboration in our community at the intersection of environmental, food, and racial justice to promote the health and well being of Newark residents. Our programs work to reverse the long history of systemic racism to improve social determinants of health by expanding access to green spaces, nutritious food, wellness education, and youth development.
